Lazaro2 Anthony Lazaro, MD

Medical school: Meharry Medical College - Nashville, TN
Undergraduate: Montclair State University - Monclair, NJ

Anthony was born and raised in New Jersey. He received his bachelor’s degree in Chemistry before moving to Nashville with his wife, Julia. While living in Tennessee, Anthony developed a love of hiking and the outdoors during his trips exploring the trails and waterfalls of the South. As he was driving around the towns he noticed that there were limited local clinics and hospitals nearby. After witnessing the effects of the rural physician shortage firsthand, along with his medical school experiences, which focused on the healthcare of underserved and minority communities, he plans to commit himself to rural areas.

Anthony pursued Family Medicine because he wanted to be the primary health provider for multiple generations of a family, to treat problems that range from simple to complex, and to perform various procedures. He chose the Fox Valley residency due to its unopposed, full-spectrum program that would fully prepare him to practice in any environment, especially rural, and most importantly he felt the residents, faculty, and staff were genuinely friendly and supportive. In his spare time, he enjoys playing video games, hiking, backpacking, and traveling with his wife.

Kayla Milano, MD

Medical school: Ross University School of Medicine – Dominica, West Indies
Undergraduate: Fordham University - Bronx, NY

Kayla Milano grew up in a small town east of Sacramento, CA. After graduating high school, she moved to New York City to attend Fordham University. Growing up in a smaller community, she wanted to experience culture in a city. At Fordham, Kayla was a member of the Women’s rowing team and studied Psychology. During her senior year, she decided to pursue a career in medicine rather than clinical psychology, and began a post baccalaureate pre medical program at NYU.  The 2 years of science courses were a big shift from her liberal arts education. Upon completing her science courses at NYU, she began her medical training at Ross University. The first 2 years of this program were located in Dominica, a small Caribbean island in the West Indies. During this time, she met her husband, another Ross Student and Chicago native. Upon completing the basic medical sciences in Dominica, she returned to the States for her clinical training. Her third year clerkships were located at a hospital in Downtown L.A. During this year, when not on rotations, she experienced the various beach cities in Southern California. Kayla completed the majority of her 4th year electives in Chicago, where her eyes were opened to yet another city with its own distinct flavor.

Kayla’s hobbies are dancing, walking outdoors, hiking, making new recipes for friends, and reading.

Kayla was attracted to the Fox Valley Family Residency Program because of the warm attitude of the faculty, as well as the diversity of practice settings that its graduates pursue. She was also struck by the cohesiveness of the Appleton community. From meeting current residents and clinic staff to local coffee shop workers and renter’s on craigslist, everyone in Appleton has been welcoming and forthcoming about how to spend time in Appleton.

 

Nettekoven3

Laura Nettekoven, DO

Medical school: Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine - Chicago, IL
Undergraduate: University of Wisconsin - Madison, WI

Laura Nettekoven grew up right here in the Fox Valley area. She went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison for her undergraduate degree, where she became interested in public health/cultural health and how it relates to primary care. Prior to applying for medical school, Laura participated in AmeriCorps in Milwaukee for one year, where she served as a diabetes educator/assistant for a community health center tailored to caring for Latino populations. There she learned first-hand the importance of primary care in improving health outcomes, particularly within populations that are under-served medically. Because of the wonderful family physician role models (and diabetic education staff) she worked with in Milwaukee, her passion for family medicine developed. Laura then attended Midwestern University’s Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, where she participated in family medicine organizations, engaged with influential family doctors, and began to truly see herself as a family physician.

Laura chose the Fox Valley Family Medicine Residency Program because of its vast opportunities and the program’s interest in tailoring her education to her specific interests, not to mention the genuine, passionate, and relatable faculty and current residents. Laura has a young (but quickly growing) son and is very excited to bring her family back home to the Fox Valley.  Her whole family loves spending time outdoors together--whether it’s hiking, biking, playing in the backyard, or spending a week in the Boundary Waters. Laura is confident that through the Fox Valley Family Medicine Residency Program, she will be able to carry on her mission as a primary health care provider to prevent future disease and promote optimal well-being of all those in her community. While doing so, she will continue to incorporate her life’s experiences minimizing barriers to health care with a positive, non-judgmental, and patient attitude.  She is so excited to start her journey as a family doc and to make a difference together with her colleagues!
